Former Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, was on CBS 'Early Morning' Show when she was asked to comment about Uncle Herman's campaign saying he was the victim of a high tech lynching. Not mincing any words, Dr. Rice said exactly how she felt.

“I don’t care much for incendiary language. And, I actually am someone who doesn’t believe in playing the race card on either side. I’ve seen it played, by the way, on the other side quite a lot too and it’s not good for the country,” she said. “We ought to be able to look at people and say, ‘All right, maybe this is a disagreement about policy.’ Everyone goes though their time in the barrel, if you will, if you choose to put yourself forward. And so, I’m not much for the race card.”

“I just think we ought to all step back and let Herman Cain answer the questions and let him answer them with full disclosure of everything and let the American people judge, but I don’t like the race card,” Rice continued. “I don’t like the race card when people say that people are criticizing President Obama because he’s black. I don’t like that very much either. He’s being criticized because he’s president.”

“It just goes with the territory,” she added.
